I know people might bristle at this one, but 4/7/85 is my all time favorite Dew. Jerry's voice is totally shot - he sounds like he has a really bad cold - but that just contributes to an emotional edge that puts this version over the top. And the sound of his guitar during the verses and the solo is murkily sublime.

I haven't listened to this one in a while, but I also recall the very next year at the Spectrum March '86, forget which date, had a pretty powerful Dew. I remember the Philly phans didn't seem to pleased that they did only one tune out of space...
